Cessna 185 has been greatly modified for speed and comfort.

 

CESSNA 185

  Our Cessna 185 has been greatly modified for speed and comfort.
   
  The Cessna has the same 300 horse power engine as the Airvan however a much smaller cabin.Its redeeming feature is its speed.
   
  With room  for four to five passengers we will guarantee  you the quickest and cheapest trip to your destination in this aircraft.The Cessna has excellent short takeoff and landing capabilities and will operate to maximum capacity out of the shortest airstrips Vanuatu has to offer.
   
 

Cargo operations

Charter Operations

    We have applied many speed modifications to the Cessna and its 150 knot cruise speed makes it the fastest and most economical single in Vanuatu. 
     
 Air Safaris Aircraft are all fitted with the latest in GPS technology for ease of navigation.   

GPS EQUIPMENT

  Air Safaris Aircraft are all fitted with the latest in GPS technology for ease of navigation.Air Safaris Aircraft are all fitted with  a device which enables us to track our aircraft by computer at all times and which stores in its memory every flight record.
   
   
   
   
   
   
 

Both of the Air Safaris Aircraft have been fitted with external fiber glass cargo pods.A large volume of cargo can therefore be carried externally from the cabin area thus increasing the volume and allowing for an uncluttered passenger compartment This keeps the passengers separate from the freight and the freight separate from the airframe. A good safety feature.
